December 4, 2015 (Friday) Dora Cemetery Association board meeting at 8 a.m. in Coquille, Oregon at Rivers Edge R. park meeting room. Board members only.
Dora Cemetery Board of Directors announce the following changes:
- Dora Cemetery geographical area to purchase grave sites has been expanded to now include current and former residents with a mailing address with the zip codes areas 97423 or 97458. As always if someone is related to someone interred at the cemetery they can purchase a grave site.
- Grave sites prices are $ 600.
- Perpetual maintenance fees are paid when grave sites are purchased. The fees are $ 200 to $400 determined at the time of the grave sale.
- Perpetual care fees and grave purchases are to be paid prior to placing a grave marker in the cemetery.
- John Frazier is the only one to open and close a grave and to place grave markers in the cemetery.
Some of these changes have come about because on several occasions cremated remains have been interred in our cemetery without our knowledge. We as a board have to protect the interest of the cemetery by collecting funds that will help maintain our cemetery and meet the record keeping set forth by the Oregon Mortuary and Cemetery Board.
